Vertical Grow Space Needed
    #2886737 - 07/13/04 05:58 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I am trying to set up a plastic container for my cakes in a rather limited covert space. I measued the space I have to work with, and I'm looking at about 9 inches high. I have a fish tank air exchange system with bubble stones that will go under a few inches of lava rock or some porus material leaving maybe 7-9 inches of hight to put my cakes into and grow. Is this enough room, or should I look for another location and scrap this idea?

If you get a 10 inch tall shroom, let us know. =]

It wouldnt be a 10 inch mushroom. Figure 8-9 inches of space, minus 2 inches of space for lavarock, minus the height of the cake. That is my question

Thought you meant you'd have 9 inches after all that...

With cakes, shrooms tend to grow from the sides, not the top, especially if you double-end-case, so that gives you a couple extra inches right there, PLUS they tend to bend, using that mass to go a bit horizontally instead of straight up. If you're worried about space I wouldn't use lavarock, but paper towels misted with water/peroxide, or geolite/perlite. I have no idea how big your cakes are, but perhaps you could cut them with a sterilized knife, in half, to get even more space.

i had the same problem with the first container i bought. i bought it with the intention of growing only one jar. but i bought the jelly jars, which are taller than they are fatter, so i ended up worrying about how much space i would have after i put the cake and perlite in, plus i had a drip shield in there. so i ended up just getting another rubbermade. should work great now, and be able to hold 4 Jars!

Thanks.. my cakes will be standard PFTEK 1/2 pink jars. So, lets say i have 8 inches of vertical space (to be safe,) 2 inches of medium on the bottom of my tank, is 6 inches enough space do you think?
